This is the remarkable story of Tulloch, the virtually unwanted yearling who rose to greatness with the support of Australia’s most flamboyant trainer and a contrasting dogged owner, who often clashed about what was best for their horse.
It’s more than a story about a great racehorse - one of the best to grace Australia’s turf and often mentioned in the same breath as Phar Lap and Carbine - who overcame a near-death illness to return triumphantly to racing after two years.
It’s a story about the characters behind the scenes - his trainer, the legendary Tommy Smith; his owner Evelyn Haley; the jockeys, such as George Moore and Neville Sellwood, who rode him; and the his strapper and track rider, Lem Bann, a song ’n dance man who whistled his way into Tulloch’s heart.
